Polyvinyl butyral films used in laminated glass act as a protective
interlayer by strongly bonding two panels of glass under high heat and
pressure. This treatment renders optical transparency to the interlayer,
rendering the panels as a single glass unit. The polymer in the
polyvinyl butyral film is tough, strong, and ductile, thereby preventing
cracks. Also, polyvinyl butyral films have been widely adopted in
manufacturing photovoltaic thin-film solar modules due to their
excellent properties. They encapsulate the circuit and protect it from
environmental damage. Thus, the increased demand for films and sheets in
the automotive sector and other end-user industries can create more
growth opportunities for the global polyvinyl butyral market.

In this report, Technavio highlights the growing demand from the
photovoltaic industry as one of the key emerging trends to drive the
global polyvinyl butyral market:
Growing demand from the photovoltaic industry
The photovoltaic effect is a phenomenon involving the conversion of
light energy into electricity using semiconductors. For instance, a
solar cell absorbs sunlight and converts it into electricity. The solar
photovoltaics industry is experiencing increased installation capacity
over the years, which will result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions as
well as a reduction in the release of harmful pollutants. Solar panels
are used for both residential and industrial applications. Polyvinyl
butyral is used as an encapsulation material for solar cells and
graphene batteries due to its excellent thermal properties such as
thermal and ionic conductivity.
“The global energy statistics of 2017 reveal that a major portion of
the electricity was produced from non-renewable sources. However, the
global renewable energy market share is expected to increase from 12% in
2015 to 15% by 2022, which augurs well for the solar photovoltaics
industry. This will lead to an increase in demand for polyvinyl butyral
during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst for plastics,
polymers, and elastomers research at Technavio.
